The Love Your Local Market campaign, which returns to the UK this October has received a major boost as this year’s sponsor is announced.
Zapp are the headline sponsor for the 2021 campaign. Zapp is the leading supplier of market stalls and accessories which has been developed over 30 years of experience with markets and traders.
Is known for their product range including all sizes and types of market umbrellas, a unique selection of folding tables, weighted support systems as well as a range of accessories including side sheets.
The Love Your Local Market campaign (organised by NABMA – The National Association of British Market Authorities), which normally takes place in late May, will return from Saturday 16th to Saturday 30th October 2021 to highlight the importance of markets to their local communities and the affordable opportunities they offer for new business start-ups.
During the periods of lockdown and restrictions, markets have proved themselves to be at the heart of local communities and now need the public’s support more than ever.
Mark Parry, Head of Zapp, said:
“We are proud to be sponsoring the Love Your Local Market Campaign in 2021. Our company has been working with markets across the UK for over 30 years and we have seen how they have risen to the challenges over the last 18 months. Hundreds of markets and thousands of traders have supported their local communities and they are a key element of our villages, towns and cities.
“We are looking forward to continuing our long relationship with the NABMA and working with its team that delivers Love Your Local Market, seeing all the events, initiatives and new traders that the campaign will generate.”
David Preston, Chief Executive of NABMA, added:
“We are delighted to be working with the team at Zapp and look forward to a record-breaking year of events, promotions and innovation from markets across the UK.
“Markets have been at the heart of local economies for centuries, but with the changing landscape of the high street and the change in shopping habits, they are seen as vital to the regeneration of many of our towns and cities.
“So, this October, we are inviting you, along with Zapp, to make Love your Local Market, the biggest and best ever.”
